Starting immediately, all seller payouts on Novelship can be requested once your item has been successfully authenticated. This means you now have full control of your sale payouts and when to receive them in your registered bank account.
To request your payout once it is ready, simply navigate to the Payout Request page, you will see a section titled ‘Payout Amount Ready’. This is the value you can currently withdraw from your account.
Here, you will see the ‘REQUEST PAYOUT’ button. Selecting this button will initiate the payout process. Please note that you can only request to withdraw the full amount of ‘Payout Amount Ready’.
Novelship now offers two methods for receiving your payout.
- Normal Payouts
- Early Payouts
Normal Payouts are pre-selected by default, and they cost less. Early Payouts are quicker, and they will require an additional 1% of the Payout Amount as processing fee.All options must be requested by the account owner.

Request Your Payout
Normal Payout Method
- The application period is the time frame in which you can request your payout. It is a 7-day period starting on Monday and ending on Sunday every week following Singapore Local Time.
- The deadline is the last day of the application period.
- If you request your payout after the deadline, your payout will be processed together with the other sellers' payouts in the next Normal Payout batch.
- Payout transfers will be initiated every Wednesday on the second week after the deadline of the application period you belong to. Note: If Wednesday is a public holiday, the payout will be automatically initiated on the next working day.
- This means if your item is successfully authenticated on a Thursday (19th of May 2022), and you request for a normal Payout on the same day, your payout will be transferred by Wednesday (1st of June 2022).
Estimated Payout Arrival Date
- Once transferred, you can expect your payout to be reflected in your bank account within 3 to 5 days after the payout processing date.
- Do note that the Estimated Payout Arrival Date will vary depending on your bank’s processing timeline and your selling country.
